What are YOU doing for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence?

World Pulse wants to hear from you!

What are YOU doing to commemorate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence? This is a chance for PulseWire as a community to stand in solidarity against gender violence.

Between November 25 and December 10, use your PulseWire journal to write about your own experience, views and activism in this movement. Use the tag “16 Days 2009” and your journal will join those of your fellow PulseWire members to create a written tapestry of testimony for ending violence against women. And don't limit yourself to just one journal entry... you can blog all 16 days if you like! Click here to read what others are writing about and add your own voice.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating in 1991 from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute and is sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University. Participants chose the dates, November 25 (the International Day Against Violence Against Women) and December 10 (International Human Rights Day) in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights, and to emphasize that such violence is a human rights violation.

The 2009 theme for 16 Days is: Commit ▪ Act ▪ Demand: We CAN End Violence Against Women!

Commit: We are All Responsible
Act: We Can All Make a Difference
Demand: We Are All Accountable
